ATU #41 Feeling Inspired?

Today starts another themed challenge here at All Things Unity!

This 2 week challenge is about getting inspiration from our magazines and catalogs!!! You know you have them out there, more than likely if you are anything like me you have a nice little stack or two Winking smile

Now we all know that it can all be a tad bit easier to get our inspiration from our crafty magazines, but what about say like Time or Newsweek?  I can’t say that I get these mags but my dad does so I borrowed one to see what inspired me.  Now the one pic that I did use was an ad and a little more obvious but the other that was a top contender definitely wasn’t.  I think I’ll definitely have to save it for a future project.

Here’s the picture I decided to use…


I really liked the black and white simple background with the pop of color arrow.  I decided to go with the same concept.  I just turned my arrow the other direction (to give it a more positive turn).  I added a few more elements but overall but I really like the way it turned out.


Thanks so much for stopping by! Please go by All Things Unity blog for a to play along at this month’s prize.

ATU #40 One Layer

It’s time for another challenge.  Are you ready?

We are doing a No Layer or as some people call it one layer.  Guess it all depends on your perspective.  The point is KEEP IT VERY SIMPLE.  Think you can do it?

I was able to pull it off with a set that I thought was missing and found the other day plus I hadn’t gotten a chance to use it yet.  The even cooler part was that I was wanting to make some get well cards anyway.

I’m in Tampa this weekend at a ASL Circuit Assembly.  I’m so excited, I’ve already run into some friends I haven’t seen in a very long time.  I just might have to share more later.

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to stop by the All Things Unity blog to have a chance at this month’s prize which I just happen to know is rubbah.

The Duke & I

I had a great time making this card.  It’s one of those that everything comes together better than you expect.


Ok here’s a little bit of information for you out there.  As you may know I have a new studio/craft room space.  Well, my doggie hates it.  I mean hates it.  I really don’t understand it either.  When I go in there she hovers, paces or whatever other intimidation tactic she can to get me out of there.  Usually she ends up going outside.  So recently I’ve taken to if I’m not specifically working on something and I can color, I will take stamped images into the living room.  And then she’s happy.  This was one of my pre-colored images.

To the Moon Alice!

Ok not quite but I’m actually getting to my studio a little more.  Let’s just call it therapy, LOL

Plus I was able to do a few challenges I’ve been meaning to do.


I took a card base and added some very appropriate October Afternoon paper – Rocket Age.  I even got to use the Rocket Age Miscellany (the strip of words & rocket ship).  The stamp is MFT You Move Me Die-Namics & Stamp Set.   Then I used the Die-namics Star Border to not only add a border but to add some visual interest to my rocket ship, they are held on by Hero Arts rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by.

NOTE:  I realize I’m a total loser and never announced who won the tote.  I’ve decided because I’m such a loser that the first person that is also on that post that responds will win the tote but all the others will also get a prize.

Welcome back to all those that like to play along with All Things Unity.  As it seems like that is the only posts I’ve been able to get uploaded lately. 

The new challenge is to create something that reminds you of Summer.


I love summer it’s one of my favorite seasons.  I love the flowers, and the fun carefreeness of it all.


Loved playing with The Twinery goodies.  If you would like to have some Twinery goodness to play with then you still have time to join in this month’s challenges to have a chance at the prize.
